New trucking rules for GM ferry on hold

Trucking companies using the Grand Manan ferry won’t have to abide by a new rule that forces a driver to travel with their vehicles between the island community and the mainland — at least for now.

“We have met with Coastal Transport and they have agreed to allow truckers to continue past practices until a solution can be found,” a Department of Transportation spokesperson stated in an email to CBC News late Tuesday.

“They will be bringing us a proposal to resolve this issue,” the spokesperson said without indicating any time limit.
